This morning in All Saints we heard all about Ellen’s trip to Malawi so I used a special blessing at the end of the service which in turn reminded me of a photograph I had taken in the clear dark skies above Skye. Here is the blessing and the photograph.
Almighty God of the plain and the mountain,
may your Spirit bless us and fall like rain upon us, bringing new life, new hope and new freedoms;
may your Son bless us and ever walk beside us especially when the road is dusty and irritating or waterlogged and difficult;
and may your presence bless us and surround us like the sun from morning till night and the moon that provides light in our darkness night.
